It is only 30 days away! I haven't even started shopping for it. I just don't know what to get these kids anymore. But I am really excited for GG as I know one of her presents she is getting from her grandparents. She is going to FREAK. I'll give a hint it is a book lovers dream present ;) Anyway I really need to get on the ball with gifts. That is my goal next week to get most of the shopping done. I really only have to get three kids pj's for Christmas Eve, one more stocking stuffer, and then one gift for each because we are getting them a big joint present of either a trampoline or ping pong table. Oh what I am thankful for today is that I learned I am NOT a black Friday shopper. I went out this morning at 7:30 and returned home at 9:45am. I only went to two stores and the first one I walked out with nothing. The second store I saved a TON of money at. I bought two books (one for a baby shower and the other as a stocking stuffer for Peanut) than I got two really cute summer dresses, a winter outfit, and a t-shirt all to go with the book for the shower. When I sat down to look and see how much I really saved I saved $80 and spent $28. I was happy about that. I am thankful for the experience of today but glad I will not be doing that again!
